A milestone in Hemingway's career, this second collection of short stories brings to life details observed only by the eye of a uniquely gifted artist.
A second collection of short stories that once again establish Hemingway as a novelist of exceptional power. Hemingway's men are bullfighters and boxers, hired hands and hard drinkers, gangsters and gunmen. Each of their stories deals with masculine toughness, unsoftened by woman's hand. Incisive, hard edged, pared down to the bare minimum, they are classic Hemingway territory.
“Painfully good- no-one can deny their brilliance”
